Year Purchased: 2006

About: Our family (three daughters, 2 son-in-laws, and friends) feels we have come home when we arrive at our Costa Rican treasure. November 2015, visitors wrote, “The house was perfect, even better than we could have ever imagined. We had a big group and this house more than accommodated us all. We had the top floor bedroom and the view was amazing from this floor as well as the second floor balcony. We woke up to views of the ocean and sounds of animals and nature. We will definitely be back to Uvita and back to this gorgeous jungle home. Massi and everyone at the Uvita visitor center were so helpful and made our stay easy and unforgettable. The house was a short drive to so many adventures and beaches that had amazing surf!” (N&N) Visitors wrote, 'The house is great for families! We enjoyed the view from the balcony of the Pacific and hearing the waves crashing.' (P & S Family) Upon leaving, one guest wrote, 'It is hard to leave. Besides the incredible adventure and experience along this stretch of the Pacific we enjoyed staying home just as much. I loved waking up early to the different birds - so different than my usual habit of sleeping as long as possible.'

Why Dominical, Costa Rica:
We purchased this home because of the charm and attraction of the nearby surfing town of Dominical. It allows you to experience the rich culture of Costa Rica with the convenience of a large home near the ocean and surrounded on two sides by jungle. CNN states, 'People often stay longer in this sleepy surf town than they intended to, thanks to monster waves and lush green forests. Dominical’s warm waters also make it ideal for long, lazy swims' (October 17).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view from the third floor balcony Relaxing in the hammocks overlooking the ocean Spectacular ocean views Fascinating jungle views Toucans singing in the trees (as many as 10 at a time) Monkeys playing in the jungle Delicious dining on the mountainside at JungleBlue at Tiki Villas (walking distance) Cool mountain breezes all day (no need for air conditioning) The charm of the local community
